things to do when you're bored

Being bored is a good thing, lol. That means that all of your priorities are taken care of. Not! Just kidding, I know what it’s like to be bored and need something to do. This can be on your day off and you have absolutely nothing to do, or especially on the weekends when everybody is at home resting and so are you and you don’t want to bother anyone. If you don’t have any hobbies to work on might I suggest the following:

Start Your Own Online Business!

Absolutely things to do when you're borednothing to start, and no credit card required. You don’t need to go get your wallet to start this awesome opportunity and start your new business path today.

The best part of this opportunity is that you can make your business about absolutely anything. Anything that you’re passionate about.


So there is what is called niche marketing. A niche in the online world is a targeted audience. Layman’s terms, have you ever had a passion for anything or wanted to start your own business?

For example, if you really love dogs you can make a website about dogs. Or if you really like make-up. You can make a website about make-up. This goes the same for anything else; automobiles, sports, technology, health, fitness, etc.

How Do You Make Money?

You can supplement your income or even replace it with enough hard work. This is a business, so keep in mind, if you do nothing, you’ll get no results. However, if you constantly put your time in and build a beautiful business online, it will blossom into something worthwhile.

Having your own business online is like advertising for free. You can learn how to get free traffic, or organic traffic. There is also PPC, pay per click, but I focus mostly on free traffic. You do this by learning seo, search engine optimization. There’s a bunch to learn but you can take it all on in baby steps. Follow the link to learn about the training here.

Things to Do When You’re Bored

I am a very business like type person and I always believe there is something to do. In a good way. Don’t get me wrong, I know how to have fun. But there is a time and a place for everything. When I am bored, I really try to get things done. We are so busy in our lives with work and family, that a lot of our priorities get pushed to the side. Check out my following list to see what I mean.

1) Write a To-Do List

things to do when you're boredTo do lists are awesome. I’ll be the first to admit I’m guilty of creating lists only to get a 1 or 2 things done. However, I can imagine if I don’t even bother to create the list, nothing will get done. So my next tip is to write a to-do list. Just get out a pen and paper and write down everything that you want or need to get done. Then, just prioritize which one will you get done first, how long it will take, and so on and so on.

2) Take Care of Priorities

As I said earlier many times we get tied up in our daily routines that we
push a lot of our personal things to the side. I just noticed yesterday that I
hadn’t washed my car in like 2-3 months. She was screaming for a wash, things to do when you're boredlol. I just have been so busy with work, and my family that I just haven’t made time for it. I always remember I need to do it, but things just manage to get in the way.

Priorities can be different things. For example, I know as soon as I get a chance I need to research how to change my suspension on my car. You know, check out the prices and costs and all of that. So your priorities might be different. You may need to walk the dog, wash your car, straighten or tidy up the garage, or kitchen or personal office.

3) Check to See if Anyone in the House Needs Help

This is the perfect opportunity to help out your spouse or other family member. We can easily get caught up in our daily routines that we forget about the ones we love. Believe it or not, they have a lot on their plate too. If you simply ask, “Hey I have some extra time on my hands, and I was wondering, is there anything in the house or errands that you need done?” I’m almost positive that they’ll take advantage of the offer. 🙂

Something good can come out of your boredom, because people love when you do things for them. It can tell them that you love them. Also, it will fill you up inside knowing that you’re doing something for someone else and just not yourself.

4) Or Anyone in Your Family Might Need Help. Call and Say Hi!

things to do when you're boredI don’t know if you’re like me, but sometimes I go months without calling some friends and family. It’s important to call sometimes and say hi. So pick up the phone and call your uncle or aunt, or cousin or sibling and just say “Hi, how are you doing?” I don’t know about anyone else but I get kind of warm inside when someone calls me just to say hi and check on how I’m doing. It says that I’m thinking of you and that I care about you. Don’t hesitate to take an opportunity of being bored to call someone you love.

5) Go to School

Did you know that you can go to school for free these days? Yeah, I googled it the other day and found some awesome opportunities to learn at universities for free! You can also get a degree from these universities. Go ahead and google it now.

things to do when do you're boredThe other day I was intrigued by the idea because someone referred me to the idea and come to find out it is true. There were so many different categories to study like business, psychology, computers, etc. I think you will be very surprised to what you can study online and get a degree with for absolutely no charge.

If I wasn’t working on my online business all the time, I would totally take advantage of that opportunity. After all, a degree can help you in your current workplace or a new career. I couldn’t finish college because I did not want the enormous college bill after my studies, but I am a firm believer that investing in yourself is a good thing.

6) Join a Network like MyPoints. You Can Take Online Surveys or Shop Online and Make Extra Money.

If you don’t do anything on my list, take a look at Mypoints. Mypoints is a place you can earn some extra money by taking surveys, playing games online, or even just shopping for stuff you were already going to buy. Also, you can earn extra by cutting coupons or just watching videos.

  1. What a great website you have Jonathan. I enjoyed reading about things to do when you’re bored. I don’t often get bored but it was good to read your ideas for those who do suffer from boredom.

    I am interested in what you say about starting your own online business. You mention niche marketing and that if you really love certain things you can start a website about one of those things.

    I just question how could I start a website about health? I am interested in the subject of health and I have seen a great number of websites about health. If I started my own website about health would I be likely to get people looking at my website? I have read about large niches and that it can be hard to get visitors to large niche websites.

    I would be interested to learn of your advice.

    Thanks Jonathan.

    • Hello Valerie, thank you so much for leaving a comment. I’m happy that you are thinking about starting your own online business. It truly is the best way to earn a passive income and build wealth. 🙂

      Health is an excellent niche to be in. The topic health is really broad so you will want to target a specific audience within the niche. It can be bone health, digestive health, eye health, ear health, nose health, do you get the idea? By narrowing it down you are making your chances of becoming more aware to readers.

      This is how you drive more traffic to your website. When you target a specific audience. A broad subject will be much too difficult to drive traffic and build revenue. It can be done, but you will have much more success narrowing it down to a specific branch of health.

      I would love to know which one you pick. Be sure to come back and share with me what you’re doing next. I look forward to sharing with you again.

      Your friend,
